Below are fifteen mid-century book covers featuring nuclear explosions, which are a major part of the photo history we document here at Pulp Intl. You'll notice three of the authors wrote six of the books. That's because once you write nukes, you never go back. And actually, a couple of these are non-fiction, so our wish for them not to come true is too late.

We got an email yesterday from a regular Pulp Intl. visitor (thanks John B.) informing us that the cover art for Slan (see below) is by Richard M. Powers. The info comes from Jon Warren’s Official Price Guide to Paperback Books, so we can be sure it’s right. Above is a Richard M. Powers panel from The Illustrated King Kong that we borrowed from the blog Atomic Surgery. If you head over there they’ve scanned some other pages from the book showcasing Powers’ unique artistic skill. And below, we’ve cobbled together a few more of his covers.

She's not a mid-20th century B-girl out to get Mike Hammer, but this hard-looking tomato would be just as lethal and sexy with a .45 in her hand as she is with that ray gun. Unfortunately, no artist's credit was given in this pulp paperback of 1951.

Thank you, Cary, for this great find. We haven't read the book, but after checking out its Wikipedia entry, we will definitely try to get hold of it. Sounds great. Very much appreciated.
